General Information
The key to surviving an emergency, be it fire, severe weather or earthquake, is being prepared. The Federal Emergency Management Administration’s “Ready Check” program, is a great place to start! FEMA’s website provides information to help you prepare, plan and stay informed for a wide variety of emergency situations, including: floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms and lightning, winter storms and extreme cold, extreme heat, earthquakes and wildland fires.

For local notifications, Metro Louisville government now offers emergency telephone calls, text messages or email notices to its citizens in Jefferson County. CodeRed® is used for emergency incidents and events where timely notification to individuals in specific geographic locations is essential. To receive emergency notifications, you must register via the CodeRed® website. This free service is also available for those who are hard of hearing via a TDD/TTY format.

One Last Note about Severe Weather Sirens
Severe weather sirens are an outdoor warning system, intended to alert people "outdoors" to severe weather conditions. They are not intended to alert people who are inside a structure. Weather alert radios are very useful tools to warn those inside of the impending weather and are available for purchase at a number of department and specialty stores. Should you hear the outdoor sirens sounding, tune into local radio or television stations for information concerning severe weather in this area so you may make an informed decision as to your safety and to take immediate action.

Please DO NOT call 9-1-1 to ask for weather information as all of the emergency services agencies will also be preparing to respond should there be a need!
